If we all strive to succeed,
Why does everyone want to leave?
This world can be so cold and cruel
Even the smartest of people drool.
Your life is so precious and short,
Almost like you need a personal escort.
To be loved and cherished,
This is what I wished
Your words can bite through my skin,
But it is not in my nature to give in
This world around us is ever changing,
Here we all sit talking and aging
Your loved ones will always be there
Even when you lose you hair
This world is our home
We must not walk it alone
Your smile drives me wild
It appeals to my inner child
Each thought is different and new
I am who I am due to you.
My wish is to keep up this pace
For I am running this race
With you by my side
I shall never lose my stride
